Sheffield United beat Tottenham Hotspurs three-one to leave Jose Mourinho’s side with no more than tattered dreams of European football.

Sheffield United kept up their dreams of qualifying for Europe well and truly alive. While Spurs’ ambitions have been all but nullified.

The Blades took the lead in the 31st minute, and after a Harry Kane equalizer was ruled out by VAr for a Lucas Moura handball in the build-up they never looked back.

While the Lillywhites had plenty of possession, they could do little with it.

Sander Berge opened the scoring for the home side in the 31st minute.

After the break, it was much of the same, but in the 69th minute, it was United again.

This time it was Mousset who had only been on the field seven minutes when found the back of the net to double the lead.

Fifteen minutes later McBurnie wrapped up proceedings, making it three-nil.

All that was left was for Harry Kane to score a consolation goal for Tottenham.

The question now is can Spurs hold on to Harry Kane after yet another season with no trophy and the likelihood of a European football fading quickly?
